Moen, Murray, Reno, and Finally Saturday Night


Written By: Iain Carnegie, BBBR

Today saw the Montréal Canadiens on the ice for an optional skate at Complexe Sportif Bell in Brossard.

Alex Galchenyuk skated alone again as he continues to recover from a lower body injury. There is still no timeline for his actual return.

Those taking part on the ice this morning were forwards Brandon Prust, Tomas Plekanec, Brendan Gallagher, Travis Moen, Michael Bournival, Ryan White and George Parros. Also goalies Dustin Tokarski and Peter Budaj, as well as defencemen Josh Gorges, Alexei Emelin, Francis Bouillon, Mike Weaver, Douglas Murray and Jarred Tinordi.

Coach Michel Therrien would only say for certain that Rene Bourque will be in the lineup tonight after being sidelined with flu symptoms on Monday. He did not affirm any other line changes.

“You’ll know my lineup only tonight,” ~ M. Therrien

However it does look like Travis Moen will step into Brandon Prust’s spot, and that Douglas Murray will replace Francois Bouillon on the defensive unit.

Ginette Reno will once again grace the Bell Centre with her voice as she sings the anthems before puck drop.

Game three begins tonight just after 19h30 with game four scheduled for the same hour on Thursday night in Montréal.

The NHL has confirmed that Saturdays match in Boston will be held in the evening as well. That will be the Canadiens first Saturday night stint in this post season.
